So this coming Sunday is Sue Lawley’s last as the presenter of Desert Island Discs. Seems a good time to update the list of my own eight selections, on the off chance that Kirsty Young needs an ex-conveyancer on the programme.
2. Miles Davis – So what
3. Jan Garbarek – Her wild ways
4. Keith Jarrett plays Bach’s Goldberg Variations
5. John Coltrane Quartet (with Eric Dolphy) – Impressions (Live at the Village Vanguard)
6. The Doors – Spanish Caravan
7. Beethoven, Grosse Fuge – String section of Cleveland O live at the Proms in 1990.
8. Andy Sheppard, Learning to wave
If only one record: Goldberg variations
Book: Lanark, Alasdair Gray
Luxury: Pens and paper
In the spirit of Doctor Who, I’ll explain later.
And your selections?
